Unfortunately for fans, hoping to get their hands on Team Ninja's next game sometime soon, we won't be seeing the game for quite some time.

Rise of the Ronin will be released in 2024 as a PS5 console exclusive according to its initial reveal trailer posted on the official PlayStation Blog.

This means that we are unlikely to see more of the game until at some point next year which is a shame based on its early impression.

Rise of The Ronin will be an open-world action RPG set in the Bakumatsu era of Japanese history, during a civil war between the Tokugawa Shogunate and various Anti-Shogunate factions.

You, of course, play as a Ronin and will play through a story set in this historically inspired world, taking advantage of the weirdly unique time period that lets you not only use the famous Katana in sword-based combat but also a variety of ranged firearms.

The trailer also gives us a glimpse at a glider and a horse, suggesting a variety of different traversal methods present in the game.
